One of Switzerland’s premier transactional outfits, Bär & Karrer provides services in the country’s three main languages and is the preferred choice for multinationals anxious to get high-value deals across the line. For example, it recently advised listed chemicals and biotechnology corporation Lonza Group on the Sfr4.2 billion sale of its speciality ingredients business to Bain Capital and Cinven. IP division lead and life sciences group co-captain Markus Wang played a crucial role in that matter; he also advised Syngenta Crop Protection on its acquisition of a production facility from Novartis Pharma Schweizerhalle. In the words of one peer: “Markus is just a charm to work with – he is responsive, constructive, comes up with pragmatic solutions and always keeps budgets and business perspectives in mind.”
